THE French Bruneian Business Association (FBBA) held a dialogue session yesterday with Dato Paduka Dr Awang Haji Mohd Amin Liew bin Abdullah, the Deputy Minister of Finance and the Chairman of BEDB, on a current update of the economic environment in Brunei Darussalam.
Held at the Radisson Hotel, the session was attended by around 70 members of the FBBA, comprising business entrepreneurs, as well as professional and corporate entities, who wanted to have a better understanding of the changing economic landscape of Brunei Darussalam and its diversification efforts.
The forum panelists were Javed Ahmad, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of DARe (Darussalam Enterprise); and Soon Loo, CEO of Brunei Economic Development Board (BEDB).
In his welcoming address, Pierre Imhof, the president of FBBA, said that this interactive session was intended to create a good rapport among various stakeholders, including those in the public and private sectors, for the growth of business in Brunei Darussalam.
The FBBA, which is one of the most active bi-lateral business associations, seeks to provide a mutual forum of exchange for French and Bruneian business partners as a means of strengthening business relationships and synergies between the two countries.
